Google and InfoSpace today announced that they have extended their agreement to distribute Google search results through InfoSpace’s network of Web search properties and partner Web sites until 2006. The agreement includes distribution of Google’s Web search results, as well as targeted advertising from the Google AdWords Program.
InfoSpace’s metasearch technology searches the Web’s leading engines and delivers the best results from each. InfoSpace’s properties include WebCrawler, DogPile and Excite.
“We’re pleased to continue providing InfoSpace with targeted advertising and award-winning search technology, distributing Web search results and relevant advertising to the millions of users who visit InfoSpace’s properties and partner Web sites each month,” said Omid Kordestani, Google’s senior vice president of Worldwide Sales and Field Operations. “Our relationship with InfoSpace increases the value we provide to our advertising customers by extending their reach to InfoSpace Web search users at a variety of popular sites across the Internet.”
“We have worked hard to build a valuable channel for our search provider partners by developing first-rate products and signing agreements to power Web search at some of the most popular sites on the Internet,” said Brian McManus, executive vice president, Search and Directory, at InfoSpace, Inc. “The extension of our agreement with Google reflects the success of these efforts and will help us to continue delivering top quality search results to our users.”
